QuickBooks 1099 Wizard
If you paid contractors in the past year and use QuickBooks 2012 or higher, the 1099 Wizard will help you save time and easily file your 1099-MISC forms.
You will be able to prepare, review, and file all the required copies of your 1099-MISC forms and form 1096 (if filing by mail) to the IRS in a few simple steps.
To access the 1099 Wizard, click Vendors > Print/E-file 1099s > 1099 Wizard.
Then click Get Started to proceed through the wizard.
Select 1099 vendors
IMPORTANT! Changing the selections here also changes the vendors' 1099 status in your company file.
If you see a message in red that your settings do not match the current IRS thresholds:
- Click on the hyperlink Show IRS 1099-MISC filing thresholds.
- Then click on the Reset to IRS Thresholds button.
Click View Included Payments and then View Excluded Payments to review the QuickBooks report of the amounts that will be included and excluded. For more information, see Marking payments for exclusion from Form 1099-MISC. Click Continue to proceed.
Note: The amounts in the Total Unmapped Payments column will not be included on the 1099 forms. This may be correct, but it may also indicate that accounts are not mapped properly to the 1099 boxes.
Click Continue to proceed.
Using the Intuit 1099 E-File Service, you can file electronically with the IRS and print form copies on plain paper, if desired (additional fees apply).
To learn more about the Intuit 1099 E-File Service or to signup and E-File, visit 1099 E-File Service: QuickBooks Desktop.
If you would like to print your 1099 and 1096 forms and file by mail, pre-printed forms are required and can be purchased from the Intuit Market.
The IRS does not accept forms on plain paper.
QuickBooks only prints the vendor data and not the actual form.
QuickBooks may not be compatible with the freeprint 1099 template off the IRS website.
